Would anyone like to setup a THR Battlefield 1942 game sometime soon?

I also play Counter Strike Source. My tag on Xfire is Darkside1911.

I still play Counterstrike. The levels and weapon balance are just so good that I haven't really bothered with many other games. BF2 is the only one since the original BF that I feel compared to CS. I don't like BF2's levels enough though. I dig the smaller, more personal CS levels like Assault, Dust, and Aztec.

BF1 and the expansion packs is the newest game I own. :eek: I just can't justify $50 a game every time a new one comes out. I think I will splurge for MOH:PA soon though. MOH is one of the best FPS game-series there is.

I still like playing the first MOH on PS1 where it gives you a "groin-shot" tally, or has several different names for "head-shot" experts. I havent decided which is better: Melon-popper or HomeWrecker. Haven't gotten Homewrecker with a shotgun yet. :evil:

I tried AA, and it looked intriguing, but the weapon control was too notchy (like the iron sight picture had preset points on the compass with the points too far apart).Agreed, deathmatches are boring. Well, they are fun to watch as a free floating spectator. Like watching ant wars. :evil:

I just can't get into any of those games.

You pay $50 Install. Start the game. Take two steps. BOOOOM! Head shot!

Start over. Take two steps. The entire world blows up around you. A bunch of guys run past. Why weren't the killed?

Start over. Take two steps. An enemy comes towards you. You unload everything in your arsenal into him with no effect. He's flying through the air, moving impossible fast, glances at you... you're dead.

These games all seem to be filled with people who do nothing but practice the game 20 hours a day. I'm just not willing to invest the dozens or hundreds of hours it takes to get to the point of not being killed within the first five seconds.

I think I will splurge for MOH:PA soon though.

You may want to reconsider. I played MoH:AA for an unhealthy amount of time, as well as the PS2 MoH game(or was it games? Been a while). PA was a disappointment. Not many people play, the servers are usually laggy, and even when they aren't the hit detection is all over the place. You'll open up on a player five feet away and miss with all 50 rounds of .45ACP, then you'll snipe a guy across the map with an SMG. They have released another patch since then but I haven't heard anyone say it fixed a great deal. I was so put off by the initial experience that I didn't bother checking it out.

The single player is more fun but they really didn't use the jungle setting that well, IMO. It's like playing inside but the walls are a solid mass of trees and there is no roof. There are a few open spots though. I enjoyed the single player a good bit, especially the Tommy gun. :D But it was quite a let down for the price.

Agreed, deathmatches are boring.

I wish deathmatches were more popular. When I must, I'll play an objective game. But I play to fight other people, not defuse bombs. ;) Probably why I hate games with "rounds." I don't want to sit and watch everyone else play, I want to charge into the enemies, take a few with me, respawn, and have at it once more.

Hehe. I can remember playing Team Fortess Classic as an HPB(High Ping illegitimate child :D). On good days when the stars were aligned, the moon was blue, and the Lord smiled, I had 300 ping compared to everyone else's 100. Usually it was more like 1000. :eek:

Yea, I remember quite a few games, playing with 400ms ping,..... I remember totally owning these two guys (I was a HWguy, you know, with the minicannon?) and they were bitching because they had 500ms ping vs my 400. Boo friggin' hoo.

But to keep it more or less gun related, what gun for HWGuys? :neener:

I used to play Engineer. I lagged too badly to do anything else. I was, however, a master at suicide EMPing. No HWGuy could last against my fiery kamikaze doom! :evil: When I got broadband, I switched to my personal favorite class, Sniper. That little red dot of dewn will never quite fade from my memory.

OH yea, suicide EMPing! Loved to do that. I especially loved to 'help' an enemy out with a friendly ammo pack real quick, and then promptly follow up with an EMP. :evil:

Another favored tactic was, of course, the MIRV jump with the demoman. Impossible, you say? Not so, if you have broadband and time the jump properly (really, it's only useful on 2fort, or it WAS, they may have "fixed that" )

Provided you had full health and near full armor, you could prime a MIRV, hang onto that sucker, and jump off the sniper deck on 2fort (you had to prime it at JUST the right time) The grenade would blow (not incidently giving the usual numerous snipers a nice grenade shower) and would usually launch you to a lower entrance, (only once did i ever make the other sniper deck, )

Snipers hated me. :P
I used to play as Phyphor, or Satan666.

And yes, like so many newbs, my first game of TFC had a "Why the hell is my screen red filtered all of a sudden?" <BLAM> moment.

Needless to say, I rapidly developed a hatred of enemy snipers...... so I got good with the Spy. :P

Actually the Majority of those are Cheaters, they create and use 3rd party programs that more or less play the game for them, and in many cases give them things like invincibility, Unlimited Ammo, Bottomless Magazine's (never need to reload), Automatic Aim & Fire and many other things.

Hi everybody! This is my first post after lurking here a while. As I'm still somewhat of a beginner in regards to actual firearm knowledge, I figured I'd post about something I know a bit more about-games!

The most realistic game that I've ever come across has been True Combat: Elite. It's based on modern warfare (M16s v AKs), but many other guns (snipers, shotguns, SMGs, etc.) in and still to be added. Frag, smoke, and flashbang grenades. No crosshairs, and iron sites are absolutely essential. Without them, you won't hit someone ten feet away. And there is no 'spraying and praying' - even people with submachine guns use the iron sites at close range. I also read that they are going to have realistic wobbling in the next version-no cone of fire, the bullet's path will be determined by what the gun is doing onscreen. Good graphics too.

The best part? It's a completely free mod. The base game, Enemy Territory, is free to legally download. Google 'true combat' to find the site. What's there to lose?

That said, I'm looking forward to posting on this wonderful site more.:)

It is, indeed, impossible. If you are me, anyways. ;) I've played TFC on and off for over four years, I still can't conc jump very well. I can rocket jump with some degree of success but I usually stick to the ground.

Needless to say, I rapidly developed a hatred of enemy snipers...... so I got good with the Spy. :P

Spies are so cute. Especially when you jump on top of them after they have feigned and crowbar them to death. :neener: It takes a special player to do well as a spy.

Hmm, I always figured a Barret .50 (M82) would be best, no red dot to let that poor bastard know what's coming.

It does take a lot of practice, and more than a little luck...there was more than one time, whilst carrying the enemy flag, some bastard sniper would suddenly decide he had to return to the ramp respawn room as I chucked the grenade around the corner and ran smack into him.... this usually would up me dead, and a few snipers, flag sitting just in hall to the left of the ramp respawn rooms. :cuss:

That's pretty good...which is why one has to be careful feigning. Didn't use that much myself, I always preferred sudden "mad minute" type attacks...sneak in, make them think I'm a buddy.....wait until they get all nice and zoomed in, then out comes the knfie....
Now, if they were smart and friendly fire was off, they'd shoot me, note the blood, and finish me off quick... sadly, many games on public servers weren't filled with smart players, just idiots that LOVED sniperwars (and they'd bitch about the flag being capped or if you were playing any other class than a sniper... if you're gonna play a sniper war, use a :cuss: map set up specifically for it!)

Ma Deuce, then, probably. MG-42 might work ok, but if he ever got a MIRV off before dying.......

I'm still in the stone age playing MOH:Spearhead, IMHO the best multiplayer PC game of the series.
I've been playing it for a good 3 years and am very good at it, but I'm very selective of the types of games I'll play. Death Matches are boring, Objective matches are fun, but my favorite are the Freeze-tag matches where you really have to use good tactics- if you move too far beyond your teammates on the map, You'll end up frozen for the rest of the game unless you are extremely lucky.

Played all the recent FPSs - I'm a sucker for the interface, even if FPSs get old after playing just about every major one from Wolf3D/Hexen/Doom, etc. No Battlefield games for me, since that unsightly abortion EA called "Battlefield: Vietnam". Two words: mouse lag. Ugh. Still unpatched, by the way.

- America's Army is the best waste of taxpayer dollars... evar. I play it occasionally.
- Aliens vs Predator (2, but 1 was also a blast). Smartguns, cloaking devices, and WALLWALKING. Confusing, but quite the entertaining game device.
- Tremulous: free, open-source version of Gloom built on the Quake 3 engine. Not *quite* as spiffy as AvP2, but less buggy and has more active players. More wallwalking, with a dab of RTS for flavor.

Few others have held my interest. CS was fun up until 1.5...
